About Anthony of Padua
Anthony of Padua was a Portuguese Catholic priest and a Franciscan friar. Throughout his life, he was renowned for his powerful preaching. Barely a year after he died, Pope Gregory IX canonized him, thereby making him one of the most-quickly canonized saints in the entire history of the Catholic Church. In 1946, Pope Pius XII declared him a “Doctor of the Church”.
He was born to Teresa Pais Taveira and Vicente Martins.
Although his family was extremely wealthy, he left everything behind to live a simple life as a priest.
He is often portrayed carrying the Baby Jesus in his arms.
Because he is the patron saint of locating lost things, believers pray to him when something or someone is lost.
